What's the highest commission you have seen?

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX
With the slow down in the Phoenix and surrounding areas market we have been seeing some interesting commission offerings. For example one new builder locally was offering sixteen percent on a spec home. Others are averaging anywhere from three percent to eight percent. I was just curiou what the highest you may have seen in your area is and what your opinion is of  the average. Thanks in advance and I see a sale in your future and you should too.

We had a few builders this last summer that were paying 10%! But for the last several years more of them were offering 7% and still are. The Austin market has been red hot for at least 7 years now.

David, this is probably not the best place to be discussing commission rates. We're talking realtor jail here! Just some friendly advice!
